NEW YORK (AP) Antonio Jenifer sank two free throws and then added a dunk to help St. Francis Brooklyn close out the regular season with four straight wins and a 55-49 defeat of Mount St. Mary's on Saturday.

Jenifer also grabbed 13 rebounds in the tight, low-scoring game. Yunus Hopkinson added 12 points and Amdy Fall had 10 points and nine rebounds for the Terriers (15-16, 11-7 Northeast Conference).

St. Francis built a late six-point lead on a Fall jumper, but BK Ashe sliced it to 49-47 with a layup with 2:43 left. Tyreek Jewell dunked for St. Francis and, in the final 45 seconds, Jenifer scored his final four points.

Freshman Elijah Long scored 16 - coming within four of his career best - to lead Mount St. Mary's (13-18, 10-8), Ashe added 10.

St. Francis earned the no. 4 seed to the NEC tourney and will host fifth-seeded Mount St. Mary's on Wednesday.
